Hi,

 

I've only just joined so don't really have any right to dictate how this site should be run, but I can't imagine many children sign up to CAG about injustices of lost pocket money or the tax taken by school bullies at the gate, so I wonder why mild cuss words like **** or *** are blocked out. Who are the moderators scared of offending?

 

I mean, if you're over 18 and you've been ripped off and looking for justice then saying **** or **** might be understandable.

 

What's the CAG fear?

 

Can any site team explain?

Hi,

 

Depends on what 'mild cuss' words your talking about, here in the Bear Garden you'll get away with a few more than you would on the other forums.

I can curse and swear like anyone but do not think it's appropriate on a forum set up to help consumers deal with a vast amount of problems, there's no need for it.

There's also words 'blocked' which could get the forum into trouble if used inappropriately.

 

I'll be the first to hold my hands up and admit I have in the past edited 'cuss words' as It's not something I want to read on a forum, what's the point, if people can't get their story across without including cuss words then there's something not right.

 

I'm sure there's plenty of our users very happy the forums are not riddled with cursing and swearing, however 'mild'.


 
 

Any advice I give is honest and in good faith.:)

If in doubt, you should seek the opinion of a Qualified Professional.

If you can, please donate to this site.

Help keep it up and active, helping people like you.

If you no longer require help, please do what you can to help others

Surely those are rules/edicts not reasons/reasoning, although I dont doubt someones reasoning/reasons were used to create them, and some is shown. Perhaps 'semantics' to some but I dont think so:

 

For example - dont 'hijack thread

1.9 Hijacking: Please don't hijack someone else's thread, no matter how closely their story resembles yours. Start a thread specific to your case - that way it is easier for people to keep track of, and thus offer you better help.

 

Perhaps it does help to keep track of individuals issues, but I think needing to refer to many threads makes it harder to get an overview of what advice is already available and what has occurred in the past.

 

So perhaps easier for staff, but not so great (in my opinion) for someone seeking advice/experiences on a subject as the more truly related threads may be a long way apart from each other despite being under the same heading, and it takes effort and site search experience to find them as is

 

On the other hand, I do think that swearing has little practical use no matter how effectively it might demonstrate our anger and frustration at a situation, and if it does offend someone who might otherwise have helped ....

 

Just an opinion.


I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...
